Anyone with an interest in world affairs will be aware of the recent history of civil strife in Southern Sudan. In 2005 the Comprehensive Peace Agreement was signed, and this process will culminate in a referendum to be held in Southern Sudan between 9th and 15th January 2011. Many believe this to be a key threshold, which will result either in the birth of a new country or the perilous slide back to war.
on Friday 7th January 2011, CMS Ireland is holding a time a of prayer in our Belfast Offices from 11.30am to 2.00pm to pray for Sudan at this key time. Tea and Coffee will be available throughout the morning.
CMS Ireland has been supporting the Episcopal Church of Sudan since the 1970s through prayer, finance and personnel. The Church has highlighted the forthcoming election as a pressing need and they are calling on their friends and partners to support them through prayer, solidarity and advocacy in the run up to the referendum. Partnership Coordinator David Gough shares,
Wherever we are in God’s family, we’ve been given a voice – to pray and to advocate for others. In the coming weeks, we can speak up for Sudan.
Please join with us as we pray for Sudan, and for God’s intervention in the events leading up to and during the referendum.
A special gathering will be held in our Belfast Offices from 11.30am to 2.00pm to pray for Sudan at this key time. Tea and Coffee will be available throughout the morning.
